| What I didn't like
The show had good elements. The pollution and caring about our planet (being environmentally friendly).

But there were elements, that were much to much of political doctrin.

Spoiler alert!

Overpopulation. I don't know if captain planet and the planeteers ever was released in countries like India, China (althought they are reglemented by the one child policie some years ago, now its limited to two) and even Africa.

But the funny thing is: Europe and Northamerica, even Russia don't really have problem like overpopulation. But other parts of the world do have.

So what I disliked was this topic and all the other hidden political agenda (as a kid you may not notice its about social policy). Its a children series not a teen - series. So much to early to put topics like overpopulation (that requires Sex or in vitro fertilisation) in an animated TV series.
